What if companies could put a monetary figure on the economic, environmental, and social impacts their business activities have on society? The emerging practice of total impact valuation offers the potential for companies to do just that. In this two-phase research initiative, we examine how several companies are faring in their efforts to quantify their total impact. Phase 1 examines similarities and differences in the various existing approaches to total impact valuation and highlights the primary characteristics of these approaches (types of impacts/indicators measured, valuation coefficients used, alignment with existing methodologies, etc.). Phase 2 examines practical applications—how total impact valuation approaches can be used to create value.
